I willl do one or two films a year from now: Kareena Kapoor
The actor has shared screenspace with Sonam Kapoor for the first time in Veere Di Wedding
Kareena Kapoor Khan is excited about Veere Di Wedding, her first release post-pregnancy. At the film's trailer launch yesterday, she said, "I wanted to be a part of this film and I am happy about it. I haven't thought about what to do next. Let's see how things turn out. My son Taimur is just 16 months old now, so I want to spend more time with him. After the release of this film, I will take three months' time to decide my next project. But I promise to do at least one or two films a year."
There were rumours that Kareena was offered a role in Salute, an upcoming biopic on astronaut Rakesh Sharma. But she said, "If I sign any film, I will make a formal announcement of that."
It was during the shooting of Veere Di Wedding that Kareena's pregnancy news came out. Asked about the experience of shooting for the film, Kareena said: "I got pregnant after signing the film, so I told Rhea (producer Rhea Kapoor) about it and that they need to take someone else. As a producer, she stood by me. She decided to change the character to be pregnant. I told them that I can't do this. But, it was Rhea's conviction that she said, 'Let's just wait for some time'."
Kareena has continued her work after marriage with films like Ki & Ka and Udta Punjab. "I am so lucky to have a husband who is so understanding. He told me to go to the gym and go back to the studio and take my son along to set an example. Yes, we (women) can do both," added Kareena, who is married to actor Saif Ali Khan.
Veere Di Wedding, which will be released on June 1, also features Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania. Kareena signed off saying that she had fun working with the team. "I'm lucky that I've worked with Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan. I'm sure everyone wants to work with them. But I wanted to get out of that commercial zone and big Bollywood films and work in a film like this... where there's a lot of teamwork."
